A common source of vibrations and rattles from the front endPart number VOL-31317231 is a new, unused Genuine Volvo suspension subframe bushing. This suspension subframe bushing is part of your car's rear differential mounting setup. Rubber mounts secure the differential to the subframe and also reduce drivetrain vibrations. These parts do wear and often need to be replaced on high mileage car's.
The original parts used by Volvo to build your car are available as replacement parts under the “Genuine Volvo” brand. Manufactured under the direction of Volvo, expect excellent quality and a premium price since these parts are exclusively available through the Volvo Dealership network.
You may not realize this, but the parts that make up your Volvo are not necessarily manufactured by Volvo. No cause for concern, as Volvo designs the part, hires a manufacturer and ensures its quality to you, including a 1 year warranty. In fact, many of these manufacturers have been making parts for Volvo for decades and are experts in their own right. In our industry these manufacturers are called OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) or OES (Original Equipment Suppliers), and are often brands you recognize including Bosch, KYB, NGK and Sachs. Don’t be surprised to open that Genuine Volvo parts box and find a NGK branded part inside.
